Birth: 1767
Death: Feb. 20, 1845
Burke County
North Carolina, USA

Married Mary Belew September 30 1795 in North Carolina ~

Died in Quaker Meadows, Burke County, NC.

He is buried on his old homeplace in a family cemetery.
Located in vicinity of Canoe Creek, Quaker Meadows, Burke County, North Carolina.


The earliest record found for William was his marriage to Mary Belew in Caswell County, NC in 1795. He is named as one of the legatee's in the 'Last Will and Testament' of John Hipworth, who was married to a Mary Winters in 1783.

This Mary is reported by some as being a sister of William Winters. He next appears in the 1800 US Census record of Caswell County, North Carolina with a family consisting of a wife and a couple of children.

He moved from Caswell County sometime between 1800 and 1810. He appears in the 1810 Census of Burke County, NC and every census thereafter through 1840.

William served in the War of 1812.

In 1828, William made a deed to Watson Winters for the land they had inherited from John Hipworth. The 1845 spring term of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions for Burke County made mention that he had died and a committee was appointed to go to his estate and allot to the widow and children, a one year provision for the support of the widow and children.
